Eagle is the common name used for several large birds of prey. Most of the 60 species of eagles come from Eurasia and Africa. Outside of this area, there are just 14 species of eagles to found with two in North America, three in Austrailia and nine in Central and South America. Eagles are large and powerfully built birds of prey. Eagles have heavy heads and beaks. Even the smallest of eagles, to include the booted eagle or red-tailed hawk have relatively long and broad wings, with more direct, faster flight despite their reduced size of their aerodynamic feathers. Most eagles are larger than any other raptors except vultures.
The bald eagle is a bird of prey that has flown with the heaviest load verified to be carried by any flying bird. One eagle flew with a load of 15 pounds of a mule deer fawn. There are, however, a few eagles that may target prey that is considerably heavier than themselves and while such prey is too heavy to fly with, the eagle has either eaten the prey at the site of kill or taken back pieces to a perch or nest. Both golden and crowned eagles have killed ungulates that weigh up to 66 pounds, and a martial eagle killed an 82-pound duiker, which is about seven to eight times heavier than the preying eagle. Because of their size and power, many eagle species are ranked at the top of the food chain as apex predators in the avian world. The type of prey for eagles depends on the eagle genus. Some eagles prefer to capture fish, while other eagles prefer other birds, snakes, or any medium-sized vertebrate they can catch. Many eagles, including the species-rich Spizaetus genus, live mostly in woodlands and the forest. These sort of eagles often target various arboreal or ground-dwelling mammals and birds, which are usually unsuspectingly ambushed in their dense, knotty environments. Hunting techniques for eagles differ depending on the species and genera, with some individual eagles having engaged in quite varied techniques based their environment and prey at any given time. Most eagles swoop down and grab their prey without landing and take flight with it so that the prey can be carried up to a perch and then torn apart.
